Dani Carvajal dramatically helped Real Madrid to their first trophy of 2016-17 as he netted in the 119th minute to settle Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup in Trondheim and send 10-man Sevilla slumping to a 3-2 defeat.
The right-back robbed Yevhen Konoplyanka of the ball before going on a solo run that ended with a superb shot into the top corner.
Goals from Franco Vazquez and Konoplyanka – who netted from the spot after Ramos conceded a penalty – saw the Santiago Bernabeu side trailing 2-1 heading into the dying minutes of regular time after Marco Asensio had opened the scoring.
Zinedine Zidane had to make do without the services of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, while Karim Benzema began the match from the bench after only recently shaking off a hip injury.
Ramos was adjudged to have brought down Vitolo inside the area and the Ukraine international had no trouble finding the net from 12 yards.
But Madrid refused to give up and Ramos hauled the sides level in the 93rd minute against his former club, heading home from close range after a superb cross from Lucas Vazquez.
That meant an additional 30 minutes were required and Sevilla were reduced to 10 men early in extra time when Kolodziejczak received his second booking following a foul on Lucas Vazquez, before Ramos had a goal disallowed for offside as the centre-back seemed to have won it.
But it was all for nothing in the end as Carvajal delivered Madrid the trophy with a stunning goal, dancing past a number of opponents before beating Rico with the outside of his right boot.
